Dining In The Area

There is a great selection of dining opportunities - The village of Jumilhac has a restaurant that offers traditional French fayre, and not more than an hour’s drive you have a pizza bistro and other fine dining establishments.

Local Markets

During the summer every Sunday morning a produce market is held in the square of Jumilhac, a great place to stock up with local goods. Another popular way to spend a summer evening is attending one of the night markets, closest ones to us are Segur le Chateau and Saint Yrieix La Perche. Local produce is offered at the markets and the stall holders will cook your chosen meal as you soak up the ambience, often accompanied by the sound of a local musician or two.

Things To Do

This area is well suited to outdoor pursuits - Cycling, canoeing, walking, running, fishing, horse-riding to name a few.
